Pandora 3D Games VS Pandora Box DX

A question of high debate is what model is better, the Pandora  3D Games with 4018 Games  and WIFI (older model was 2448) OR the New released Pandora Box DX 3000 Games.

This is a very difficult question to answer easily and that answer can vary from person to person based on your wants / needs from your console. Some people want easy download access from the games market, others want to download their own ROMs and plug and play. Both are great approaches, which is why this question is not an easy one.

Pre- Installed Games

While each unit has thousands of games, neither are perfect, this is after all, game “emulation” and those familiar with emulation already know it has it glitches from time to time. We do try and weed out the games that do not play correctly, however with thousands of games it can be hard.

Yes some games are in foreign languages (the whole world does not speak English 😉 as these units are sold worldwide. Also some games have different play modes based on country, such as some retro Japanese ROMs. There may be duplicates of some favourites to ensure at least one version is fully stable. Feel free to delete games as you choose, as remember, on both units you can add more games.

Many users feel the sound quality of the 3D games unit is better than the DX model as well, with less sound glitches or ROM volume issues. But remember many of these issues are related to the ROM quality itself, not the board.

There are new tools for the 3D Games model, such as Pandory to create custom SD cards from your own downloads and also Jailbreaking tools to expand the unit. We do not supply the jailbreaking or support it if you mess it up so be careful!!!

We do not guarantee or support the individual ROM games, they are just a head start on hours of fun. Feel free to delete and add your own.

The 3D games model now has 4018 pre-installed games found here:

The DX has 3000 Games pre-installed, found here:
https://pandorastoybox.ca/pandora-box-dx-3000-games-list/

 

So…. what one to pick?

In summary, we recommend the 3D games for its overall more powerful chipset and wifi option. While adding outside downloaded 2D games is not as easy, It is still the leading seller and the most expanded unit.

We would recommend the DX for those wanting 4 player action and direct adding personal downloaded ROMs via USB.

OUR STAFF PICK IS…
Pandora 3D 4018 Games with wifi
